ello everyone : ). It’s fall already…life seems to be all about cycles…right? I always have to keep in mind…as much as I enjoy the come and go of seasons..some cycles of life can make me sad…you see I have been away and for a long time I though on how to write about how I lost a beautiful flower in my garden…one that made me smile everyday..night..day…any time. I am still heartbroken, but as my flower showed me day in an out we must focus on the beauty and the positive things. The smell still here…the touch will never be forgotten…and I think it is all because of her magic. The inner one that everyone and everything has….life must go on…good changes will be welcome. I will keep faith. It is good to be back and know you are out there : ). TY for your patience and your friendships…you know who you are .
Today I will share with you a little project I prepared for different challenges. A Gilli project with a little magic on it LOL. Well it is no secret I do love an embossing. I am madddd about dry embossing, heat embossing, pretty much any kind of embossing (So guess what is this week’s theme for House of Gilli Challenge? lol) For this project I used one of my favorite things..Zing! Talking about transformation…I really like the metallic from this brand. If you are looking for something like that for your Christmas stuff…your search is over. I am that serious. LOL. I die cut the letters ( I used the amazing cardstock from paper temptress – she has amazing cardstock with perfect weight to do this. I am not even mentioning the pop tones paper that simple match with everything lol)/ put some of the magic powder and BAM! Maybe PLIM! lol there…gold…coppers. The powder was so forgiving that I even manage to create a distress look frame around the image.
The metallic feel of this project came from the Greeting Cards Challenge at the Outlawz..it is all about metals this week. Aside from all my metallic zings, ribbon and what not I also added a little star brad…I very seldom use brads but they are the easiest way to add dimension to a project.
I hope you will be bring some of your magic to our challenges! We all have a little something sparkly and special to share in this world…. hey there is always someone out there that can use some cheering…so bring it on!!!
Much love to you all
